Greg Kinnear, Katie Holmes in History's 'Kennedys'

History is lining up an all-star, if unintentionally funny, cast for its "The Kennedys" miniseries. The network has cast Greg Kinnear, Barry Pepper, Katie Holmes and Tom Wilkinson for its eight-hour scripted project. Kinnear will play John F. Kennedy, Pepper will play Robert Kennedy, Holmes will be Jacqueline Kennedy and Wilkinson will portray Joe Kennedy Sr. The miniseries will debut in 2011 and counts "24" veterans Joel Surnow and Jon Cassar among its producers.
